While character and storyline details aren’t available at this time, actor Chris McKenna tweeted earlier this evening, “It appears I’ll be making a bit of a return to soaps. At least for a few episodes.” He tagged CBS’ “The Young and the Restless” in the tweet to his followers.

Last appearing in daytime in 1993, when his three year stint as Joey Buchanan on ABC’s “One Life to Live” concluded, McKenna has appeared in episodes of numerous primetime shows including “NCIS: Los Angeles,” “Rizzoli & Isles,” and more recently TV Land’s “The Exes.” McKenna had a recurring role on The CW’s “90210″ from 2011-2013. In 2014, he can be seen in the features “Off the Grid” and “Blind Pass.”

I wonder if he's gonna be the new Adam? he's 36 and 6foot 3. I've did some research. If he can play bad boy he might be the new Adam.

Well he has done some prime time so it sounds like he is pretty good. He is quite nice looking and in fact much better looking then MM. Wouldn't bother me any if he were the new Adam.

He's pretty nice looking, he could be Adam. Whoever they get, I want him to be soooooo hot and popular that all the rabid MM fans stew in their own juices. Too bad there's no way to make sure they never get to see the show again, because you know they will, in spite of all their protesting. :popcorn:

Could be saying that just to throw us all off the scent. They will want to see how he goes over. Just like with that Kyle guy nobody ever cared for him as Kyle. He bombed big time. Then, he got let go. My theory is this is the one.

Just because he says it's only a few episodes doesn't mean it really is. You know how they like to throw us off.

Feb. 17 is a few weeks from now and is "bringing GC together." I'll bet he's playing the Abbott cousin casting rumor that was swirling around. I do hope someone fills Michael Muhney's shoes; they are big ones to fill! I don't want Adam GONE as I really like the character.

The casting call for 'Andrew Abbott' was actually for the recast of Billy, they just couldn't tell people
